Ultraviolet rays from the sun can damage our skin and lead to signs of premature aging. The backs of our hands, face, décolletage or neck area, and shoulders often receive the greatest amount of UVA and UVB rays. Sun damage can lead to dark spots, leathery-looking skin, fine lines and wrinkles, thin or crêpey skin, broken capillaries, and discolorations. Photo rejuvenation, or IPL treatments, can reduce the appearance of prematurely aged skin due to sun exposure.
The intense pulse light of a photo facial is non-invasive and requires no downtime. The broad spectrum light gently penetrates the skin and treats discolored areas to diminish age spots and liver spots almost painlessly. You can enjoy all the benefits of resurfacing without the drawbacks frequently associated with chemical peels or medium depth laser resurfacing.
If you are bothered by brown or red spots, uneven skin tone, rough texture, broken capillaries, spider veins, enlarged pores, redness, and other signs of photo damage, IPL treatments may be right for you. The process is extremely safe and effective and stimulates collagen production to create healthier, luminous new skin.
